What is the message of this plumbing section?


For those of you wishing to cut corners and just do a repair or addition half baked this is not the site for you. This forum has many master plumbers, plumbing inspectors, Engineers and others in the trade craft of plumbing that are willing to help you do it in a safe and effective matter.

Safe because after all we are dealing with human waste. The most infectious unsafe thing your body disposes of daily. So it does matter to those of us who have spent a great deal of time to tell you the code correct way to do something in your jurisdiction.

What is code? Plumbing and all building codes have been developed from what has been learned from past mistakes. Hot water tank exploding because of a bad thermostat can flatten your house. Fertilizer in your drinking water is not good for you. Human or animal feces in that same water leads to disease and parasite infestation. So codes were put together to make building more uniform and plumbing more safe. You do know that in early America and Europe it was common to dump the bed pan out the second floor window onto the street below.

That is why when you come here you need to have an open mind. Sit back learn something new any idiot can glue pipe together. Only tradesmen can make it all work without a flaw. Listen to the advice given answer questions when they are asked. Most of all do it the right way to protect your family and your biggest investment your house.

In general, can't argue with what you say. But here's my basic problem: I am a retired engineer, and two plus two equalled four no matter where in the world I worked. But plumbing is different (as is electrical to some degree). What adds up to four and is perfectly legal here might not be in the next county over. Or, it may add up to five and not be legal there, but in some cases the inspector may say it's still four and pass it anyway (AAVs are a good example). Such inconsistency does a lot to confuse people and fuel the belief that codes aren't all that important.

All I can do is try to provide the best bang for the buck that will result in as many years of trouble free plumbing. You know as well as I know that even if we had a code for the entire country the human factor tends to start kicking in.
